Organic Fabrics

Have you used organic fabrics?

I’ve not yet, but I’m planning a project with this fabulous bundle of Nature Walk:

Michelle at Cloud 9 Fabrics graciously sent them to me last week, and I’m loving the soft hand and beautiful prints.

If you would like to better understand what makes these fabrics organic, and why you might want to use them, I found the FAQ page at Cloud 9 Fabrics super informative.

Now to dream up the perfect project!

What are you up to today?

  1. I have been wanting to try the organic fabrics, especially some of these cool prints from Cloud 9, but they are quite expensive compared to quilting cotton. Not sure if I can afford them since I’m a student again. Speaking of which, I have a big sketch due for class tonight, so I will be working on that today.

  2. I am working on my charity quilts, I have the tops and I have some quilts that were started but did not finish. Some of the fabrics are vintage. Organize fabric (I am sure it is expensive but I would like to see and feel it).

  3. What a lovely thing to get in the mail! I have no doubt you will do something wonderful with them! We have ANOTHER snow day here (#5!) so we are going to take the boys sledding…whoo hoo!
    After that I must work on quilting my nephew’s quilt!!! I want to meet my challenge :)

  4. I have used organic fabric by “Harmony Art” and love it! I think you can really tell the difference in just the feel, look, and drape of the fabric. I love Cloud 9 for their colors and patterns are so modern. Have fun with them!

  5. I haven’t used organic fabrics yet…
    Today is a snow day here. Kids at home and hopefully I will get to resume my position in front of the sewing machine to meet my goal from your challenge.

  6. Hi Amy! I enjoy so much even just seeing so beautiful fabrics! Designs and colours are lovely! You are lucky to start to create with them! Hoping to see soon your dream project!

  7. Those are beautiful! I don’t notice a large difference in the fabric while I’m piecing, but after it’s all together and washed, I think the organic fabrics are softer. They continue to get softer with each washing too.
